Marching into Spring


As winter comes to an end, Flat Rock Cellars is excited about the beginning of our busiest season. We are in the middle of putting many wines from the 2010 vintage into bottle, fresh off of a very exciting Chardonnay tasting in New York City, recently celebrated the Niagara Wine Region red carpet style at Cuvee and are only beginning our season's events here at the winery. Needless to say, we have been a little busy! I am particularly excited to tell you about the wines headed for bottle this week, as we are thrilled to have a wine we can rarely bottle as a single varietal here at FRC... 2010 Gewurztraminer is not only ready for bottle, but will be released in May. This wine is in very good company as 2010 Twisted, Riesling, Pinot Noir Rose and an incredibly tasty Nadja's Vineyard Riesling are also getting ready for their debut!



The winery is alive with the bustle of winemaking, but also the excitement of a spring and summer season packed with exciting events and participation in many very cool programs. Amongst the most important things to tell you about is our new tasting menu... on the iPad! The tasting room still features the romantic whimsy of winery life, with a little added fun! The app is very cool, and currently in use at the Cellar Door! Other exciting news, we are debuting our Yoga in the Vineyard program, and while I don't know that I will hit the mat, the ladies of Flat Rock Cellars are already practicing their downward facing dog poses! Another exciting event is the always fun F'ing Winery Tour. And let it be known it is always an F'ing good time! I am excited about what is happening at Flat Rock Cellars, and I am excited to see you out during the spring and summer season. Always say hi, because you are why we are making this wine!
